These platform sandals truly are foxy. Especially if you've got a bright new pedicure poking out from the peep toes. They have a cool retro stacked three-inch wooden heel and pretty dark teal leather T-straps. They'd look totally cute with a sundress or a long flowy summer skirt.
Gussy up your outdoor lounges and couches with this cushy blue pillow. It's made of water-resistant material and the pretty cornflowers give your patio a homey feel. Plus, it's something to throw if someone says something you don't agree with.

I was reading a piece in this month's issue of Domino about how objects inspired by nature (think coral and tortoise shells) make great decorations. I agree. I think these blue shells would add a punch of color to a bookshelf or side table. Each shell is about four inches wide.

Looky, it's like your very own blue-light special. It's a night light that charges itself during the day on sunlight and the glow of your incandescent bulbs. I like the way it's designed to look like a lightbulb encased in a cube of glass. It would look cool on the nightstand.
If you have a fear of slipping in the bathtub like I do (hey, I don't want to die naked with shampoo in my eyes, okay?), these things will give you some peace of mind. They keep the tub from getting slippery. And you can pretend you're taking a bath in a goldfish pond.

I saw this on InStyle.com the other day. It's the cutest way to protect your 'do from the elements that I've ever seen. It's made of white weather-resistant cotton, with either green or black patent leather trim. Granted, it costs a lot more than a kitschy plastic kerchief, but it's got some serious glam.
I like the natural look of this citrusy candle. It's made of lemongrass and chunks of bamboo. The five-inch-tall candle can burn for 70 hours, but even unlit it makes a nice decoration for the bathroom or a coffee table.
$14.95, Crate & Barrel
These hanging lanterns give your porch or deck or balcony a little romance. I like how easy they are to set up too. You just pop in a votive, and hang it from a hook or a nail. They come in two sizes, one with a five-inch-wide base and one with an eight-inch-wide base. Besides the color seen here, you can also buy them in turquoise or white.
$38.00 and $58.00 each, Anthropologie
This little necklace is simple and beautiful. I love the way the milky, opalescent moonstone pendant almost seems to glow from within. It comes on an 18-inch sterling silver chain with an oversize clasp that makes it easy to slip on and off without assistance.
$52.00, A Pretty Rock
I can has giant ice cream cone? Seriously, if I actually owned this two foot tall ice cream cone lamp, I think I would just be craving ice cream constantly. It would be like that summer where the ice cream man parked outside of my apartment all day long. But I still covet this thing. It's so wonderfully bizarre, and maybe this is because it's "soft" serve, but it even gives off a nice soft glow.
